Excellent for pastors, church-planters, and soon to be church-planters
I loved the first episode of this podcast and I look forward to more. It is a wonderful resource for church leaders who want to not just “succeed,” but be heathy in the process of doing ministry. As a church-planting pastor, I highly recommend it!
I’m really excited about this!
Merida has a very pastoral teaching style. He’s wildly practical and yet deeply theological. This is crazy helpful for gleaning wisdom in church planting and the importance of the local church.
